There are a few fashion items I have been contemplating giving a try. In fact, have even purchased these to try.
I never thought I would ever do leggings again. I am not a super fan of them under a lot of things (not quite sure about shorts and a lot of dresses below the knee), and even less of a fan NOT under things, but I am starting to warm up to the idea. I purchased a dark chocolate brown to wear under a sweater dress I have. Not sure if I will wear it with boots (will it look like a pirate combo?), ugg-like boots, or flats. I think I may also need a big chunky belt. I always feel silly doing the belt over the shirt thing but it seems to be a popular way to wear a long shirt or chunky sweater.
Going blonde…actually, I have thought about this on multiple occasions but am still thinking. RED LIPS. I have always found red lips slightly scary, at least for me. I have NEVER tried red lipstick before. I had a sudden urge at Christmas time. Maybe it was the red poinsettias or the dreariness of winter. Still not sure I pull it off (do I look like a clown?) but it is fun to try. I even did red nails which I have not done since I was in kindergarten.
(sorry about the blurry pic)
Perhaps the most shocking, as if leggings weren’t enough, I bought some faux leather leggings. I am actually kind of excited about them but I laugh because I was making fun of them last year. Oops. I’m just not quite sure what to wear them with. It has to be something great or I will look like an idiot instead of a fashion forward woman. I am trying to find a cool flowy tunic or sweater similar to above or a good rocker-like shirt/jacket combo.
What do you think of my new ventures in fashion? I would be interested to hear how you rock these styles or if you HATE them.
